In September 2011 he joined the Paris Conservatory of Higher Education, graduating in piano with a master's degree in piano accompaniment (classes of Jean-François Heisser and Jean-Frédéric Neuburger); in September 2013 he specialised in composition with Jean-François Zygel, following classes of counterpoint with Pierre Pincemaille). In June 2014, Philippe completed the Master of Accompaniment with a mention and in September of the same year he obtained a Master in Chamber Music at the CNSM in the class of Itamar Golan, in a trio with François Pineau-Benois (violin) and Nil Kocamangil (cello). His professional experience is already considerable. Solo concerts: Les Nuits musicales festival in Pisa; Musique au moulin (Moulin d'Andé); Musique et Terroir festival in Caunes-Minervois; Le Brulhois musical festival; regular participation in the Heure musicale au Marais in Paris.

Philippe is also a composer (former pupil of Michel Merlet at Levallois-Perret from 2005 to 2011), harpsichordist and organist since 2008 with Benjamin Steens as well as cellist. Last October he was admitted to Pierre Pincemaille's improvisation class at the CRR in Saint-Maur-des-Fossés.

In addition to his musical activity, he is also interested in natural sciences, humanities and philosophy, with a clear preference for comparative linguistics.
